Our 'Values for Living'
As a school, our fundamental aim continues to be to give our pupils the best possible start to their education, which will enable them to grow into flourishing and successful teenagers and adults.
Our core Christian 'Values for Living' distinguish us distinctively as a church school, and are the principles which guide the thinking, behaviour and relationships of all involved in the school. The explicit ways in which staff, children and governors articulate and demonstrate these 'Values' are part of character and culture. They are our shared moral code, guiding the expectations of behaviour and relationships of all who are part of the school.
Our 'Values for Living' are:
Love Thankfulness Forgiveness Grace Compassion Community
Throughout the year we focus on each of the individual Christian values, in Collective Worship, in classrooms and around the school.
In essence… We aim to share God’s LOVE with each other through acts of kindness and thoughtfulness, and showing FORGIVENESS to others when things go wrong.
We demonstrate COMPASSION, supporting others in whatever way we can, whatever the circumstances.
When we act with GRACE we do not treat each other as we might deserve to be treated, but our actions are guided by love, forgiveness and compassion.
Our ‘Attitude of Gratitude’ reminds us to be THANKFUL for all that we have been given; and finally we aim to live out our Christian values, demonstrating them to all within our COMMUNITY.
